    Red face PLEASE VOTE - Which Escher Steps Pattern is best?

    Hi,

    I am making this quilt for some very special - my DH, and when I ask him which pattern he likes the best he just smiles and says they are all wonderful. So I am here looking for input - Please vote for #1, 2, 3 or 4 and what you like or don't like about it or the one you chose....

    thanks!

    I also like #2. I like seeing the steps going in both directions.

    I like #1 best. It just works for me.
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.

    Definitely #1 or #3. Just a thought ---what if you made the design larger, like only 4 x 5 squares instead of 5 x 6. Your pieces would be a little larger to work with.

    The squares are actually 10X10 and the entire quilt will be 74X 68.

    With #1 - I see the steps first - and for reasons I can't explain, I would like the steps to go from bottom left to top right.

    With #3 - I see the backgrounds first, and the steps are secondary

    I don't care for #2 or #4 - and I can't explain exactly why - maybe because it's because the steps resemble some other patterns, and it seems like a waste of a really unique design feature.

    perfect explanation. I agree with this. If it's the steps that you want to see, number one accomplishes that.

    I keep going back to one. They are all great but there is something that catches my eye on one

    I like #3 the best. It flows well, but your eyes don't get bored as they would in #1. All of them would be lovely, though.
    The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow. Do good anyway.

    I like 1 the best. The steps jump out at me. (For 3, the steps don't jump out.... they are secondary).

    I don't like 2 or 4 as much. They make my head spin. LOL

    I like #1 best. #2 is beautiful but a little to busy for my taste.
